Nice shot. I think I stayed in an inn just out of shot to the left when I went to view my now dog when he was a puppy. He was from a farm near Allington. I do recall it all getting a bit raucous outside after closing the night we stayed over

Saving the pic to PC and checking properties shows the focal length as 35mm. I suspect that is due to the use of 67 lenses and adaptors.

Hi, I couldn't see a reason for it happening. But it did happen with the fotodiox and not with the Pentax. I no longer have the fotodiox so can't check anything on it now.

Absolutely lovely shot Mike. The level snow line briefly made me think it was two shots one above the other. I have been laying 900mmx600mmx50mm slabs all day though.

A series of 3 7 vertical frame panoramas taken over a 45 minute period looking down Glen Etive with Buachaille Etive Mr on the right and the White Corries to the left. It was quite dynamic weather with wind, hail, snow, rain, and sunshine all within minutes of each other. Taken with the Z and 28-45mm.

Bumping this in case anyone has found a work around to catch in focus for the 645Z

I still had electricity and two commercial greenhouse fan heaters going. I also have a woodburning stove. So no great hardship. The issue is with an air source heat pump. I read elsewhere of some poor soul having heat pump issues and having to sell his 28-45mm. Luckily mine is still under guarantee for this round of repairs. However if I stop posting pics on the forum completely you will know what has happened.

A handheld panorama from the battlements of Fort St Elmo in Valletta Malta, looking across Sliema harbour to the Valletta's modern sister city of the same name. This was taken last November. 9 portrait frames with the Z and the DFA 55mm 2.8.

F8.0 and 1/60th. I supported the body on a tripod in the room and, embarrassingly, the lens barrel with my 645 FA 150 mm lens jammed under it on the window sill.

Another shot from the recent cold snap local to my home. Taken with the Z and DFA 55mm. The view accross Loch Awe from the bottom of my access track. The warmer loch producing heavy mist that lifts a little as soon as the sun rises above the hill behind me. I was down there at this time as I was shuttling electricians and plumbers up the track on a quad bike as the track was not passable to their vans. They were there to fix my central heating on the 31st of January. It had broken down on the 31st of December......

My 'home' mountain Ben Cruachan with late sun rendering the snow cover pink. 645Z and A 300mm. The slopes are some 16 miles away from the bedroom window I took this shot from.

The City of Valletta in Malta lighting up as dusk falls. This is a panorama of 14 vertical shots with the Z and the DFA 55mm.

I took a speculative trip up to Rannoch Moor as deeply mixed weather was forecast. All these were shot with the Z and the 90mm macro handheld the first is a handheld panorama of 4 protrait shots stitched in PS CS6. The second is a single handheld shot and the third a stack of two handheld images. The loch is called Loch Ba and the rock reminds me of a crocodile's head. The weather sealing of both camera and lens came in useful to say the least.

Perhaps just aspire, but not self dismiss. Getting one is the step beyond. Your skill level is not the arbiter of the move. But yes the wallet shrinks dramatically. Wallet width is only one measure of life.

Not sure 645 is out of anyone's skill level. It makes you slow down a bit in the main, that alone ups skill level and learning opportunity. Yes a bad composition can still occur, but the the technical quality of the shot would probably still remain. It is something of a chimaera, the conceived Gulf between MF and APSC. Yes the better you become techically the better the results are likely to be, but the 645z is a great tool to both express ability and to learn more as you do it.

Yes somehow the reds are better through the one 67 I currently own. I also really like the way it renders greens. Pentax has generally done well with greens, but somehow in this horticultural context the slightly less saturated green helps with showcasing flowers.
